Zem Mountain Monastery

Zenju Earthlyn Manuel will led a three-day silent retreat at Zen Mountain Monastery.

Retreat Content:

Titte: The Fullness of Emptiness
We will explore the significance of emptiness or Shunyata (in sanskrit) and the symbol of the Japanese enso (circle). We will also explore the function of emptiness in our lives and how it enhances compassion and wisdom within our relationships with each other and all living beings. Rev. Zenju Earthlyn Manuel will also share from her experience with Native American traditions the significance of the hollow bones of eagles. During the retreat she will engage in dialogue of how one might consider emptiness as a path of transformation and healing.

The Mountains and Rivers Order is a Western Zen Buddhist lineage established by the late John Daido Loori Roshi and dedicated to sharing the dharma as it has been passed down, generation to generation, since the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. You can practice with us at our two main locations—Zen Mountain Monastery and Zen Center of New York City—as well as the Order’s affiliate groups.
Since 1980, we’ve offered traditional and innovative ways to engage the Buddhist teachings through our programs and retreats. Both the Monastery and Brooklyn Temples are places of practice and refuge to help you learn how to integrate your spiritual path into your everyday life. Whether you come for a Sunday Morning Program, a weekend retreat, or a period of residency, you’ll have a chance to experience a dynamic spiritual community and a place to encounter your own inner silence and stillness, wisdom and compassiom.
